Health Department Tags Keweenaw COVID-19 Hot Spots

The Western Upper Peninsula Health Department has released a list of locations and times at which people may have been at elevated risk for COVID-19 infection.

The Health Department says these sites were visited by people who have since tested positive for COVID-19. Others who were at these sites, especially at times when masks were not worn, and social distancing not practiced, may have a higher risk of exposure.

The sites are…
• Keweenaw Brewing Company, 408 Sheldon Ave, Houghton, June 26th through June 29th;
• The Downtowner Lounge, 100 Sheldon Ave, Houghton, on June 27th;
• The Mosquito Inn, 39959 M-26, Toivola, on June 27th;
• The Agate Beach Campground, Toivola, MI, on June 27th;
• Twin Lakes State Park, Toivola, MI on June 27th through June 29th;
• Applebees, 980 Razorback Drive, Houghton, MI on June 28th, from 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM;
• The Portage Golf Course, Houghton, on June 28th and June 29th.

Exposure could have occurred directly at the sites, or indirectly beginning several days later for those who had close contact with someone who visited one of the sites.

COVID-19 symptoms will typically appear within 2 to 14 days of the exposure. If you have or develop symptoms such as cough, fever, or shortness of breath, you should call your family physician immediately.
